Sara, May 2017

I hired a bell tent for my daughters birthday sleepover party. When my daughter saw it, she was so excited. Katrina made the tent look beautiful with bunting, fairy lights, pretty cushions & rugs. Perfect for a little girls sleepover. Thank you so much.

Deborah, May 2017

The service received from Katrina from start to finish was amazing. The tent looked fab and my daughter and her guests had an amazing time celebrating her 21st Eurovision party. Thank you


Dee, June 2016

‘We hired three bell tents for a friends hen do, we were having real trouble getting a glamping experience together but Katrina was really helpful, the tents were fab including fairy lights making them easy to find on the way back from the toilet block and our deposits were returned promptly.

If you are organising a hen do I would definitely recommend Beautiful Bells along with the YMCA campsite near Botley and the woodmill activity centre for kayaking (the girls here were fabulous) and then top it off with dominos pizza.’

Robyn, August 2016

‘We hired 6 bells including the wedding bell for our ‘Westival’ this August. The tents were stunning both inside and out and very decorative on the day. We put them on the lawn in front of the marquee so everyone could have a snoop and be jealous of the lucky few who got to sleep in them! � Katrina and her team were super helpful, friendly and efficient. Not only did the tents look great, but they were exceptionally comfy to sleep in. I couldn’t have imagined waking up anywhere better than a bell tent with a view of the South Downs the morning after our wedding. Thank you Beautiful Bells!’

Thank you so so much for making Hattie’s 1st Birthday such a triumph. I was bowled over by how stunning the tent looked and your attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Right from the very first inquiry you were a pleasure to deal with and you went above and beyond my extremely high expectations with everything you did and brought along. The service you offer is professional and of an exceptional standard and I am sure Beautiful Bells will go on to do great things.

Sophie, June 2016

‘Beautiful bells created such a wonderful and pretty base for our hen weekend, the little extras made it feel very personal to us. Katrina was so supportive during the planning of the weekend and made me feel very relaxed and reassured on our camp site choice, she couldn’t have been more helpful. I would highly recommend hiring a bell tent from beautiful bells and I wouldn’t hesitate in using them again. Fabulous experience.’

The beds are so comfy and the duvets too. Despite a late finish on the night and only a few hours sleep, we all slept really well! Lovely people and a pleasure to have them involved. Thank you so much! X’

Nicole, May 2016

‘I hired the ‘honeymoon bell’ for my daughter and her husband following their wedding on 19 July. It was truly beautiful and they loved it. It was expertly pitched by Katrina outside the barn at Barford Park Farm in Downton where the reception was held, within wonderful surroundings and it looked amazing. The tent was admired by all the guests. It was so much part of the wedding as everyone was able to be outside all evening because of the wonderful weather. Highly recommend Katrina – she is friendly, efficient and really seems to enjoy making people happy. I want a holiday in one of your tents!’

Hayley, May 2014

Thank you and your team so much for making Megan’s birthday so special. What a fantastic business you run. We couldn’t fault you guys at all. There are a few companies we looked at but you really gave it the personal touch with all the little extras you provided. The bunting, marsh mallows, the fire pit went down well too, keeping everyone warm till it was time to snuggle down in the comfy but luxurious bell tent.

I have been inundated with email requests and have forwarded your details, so expect lots of bookings soon. Thank you again and I will contact you soon with dates for our next glamping experience.

Polly, October 2016

‘I booked the Snug bell tent in October for my partners 30th birthday. We booked the beautiful tent for 2 nights and it was perfect. During the booking stages the company were fantastic in communicating with me about what I wanted and what we needed to bring. Once booked they required a deposit and then we paid the final payment later on. They even allowed us to bring our beloved Cockapoo Daisy which we never leave home without. When we arrived the tent was pitched and beautifully decorated. It had everything you needed for a romantic evening or two. The log burner was a god send, however I do recommend that you take additional long burning logs, as although there is ample sticks supplied we got though the lot. Could be because we decided to pitch in October! The company, tent and decoration was fantastic. They even threw in a box of chocolate too. I cannot thank you enough you helped to make a 30th birthday unforgettable!!’

Kay, June 2016

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for a fantastic weekend. I was having so much trouble finding a venue / company that would cater for a hen party! And then I found beautiful bells and all my problems were solved!

Everything was perfect, the finishing touches especially from mirrors, candles, board games and marshmallows, you really thought of everything! The tents looked great and you and your team were so friendly yet professional. Katrina especially went above and beyond and really made planning the hen do much easier.

I would recommend beautiful bells to anyone for any occasion if they are looking for something like this. Keep up the great work and I wish you and your team all the best for the future 🙂

Thanks again


Pip, August 2016

‘Firstly let me say..I hate camping! So when I won the competition of a Beautiful Bells tent hire, I was slightly anxious. Things didn’t improve when the weather forecast said severe weather warning! But on seeing the gorgeous bell tent waiting for us, all my worries disappeared (may have had something to do with the fizz I drank too). So pretty and extremely comfy with lovely little extras like big cushions, lanterns and fairy lights. And the best thing? Waking up the next morning with a champagne head knowing that I could just walk struggling with tent poles. Congratulations Kat… You have done the impossible…I am a fan of glamping!!!!…although a 5* hotel would still be my first choice. Thank you soooo much x’

Genevieve, June 2015

‘Beautiful bells made our wedding weekend ♡ tents were gorgeous and cosy, had everything we could have wished for and more. It was truely the best wedding tent…A log burning stove, luxury hamper full of goodies, sheep skin rugs, supersoft bedding…you get the picture.
Katrina throughout was an absolute gem, fantastic communication leading to the big weekend and helping out wherever she possibly could. The guests absolutely loved every second and fully rated the whole experience.
We are so grateful for all your hard work and I will absolutely rave about your company to all I know : ) we hope to see you again for our 1 year anniversary!! Same place same time ; )
Love Genevieve and Steve xxx’

Grace, May 2017

I was very lucky to have a brilliant surprise Hen do thrown for me this weekend, the details of which I knew nothing about! After an exciting morning at the New Forest water park and a pub lunch I was blindfolded (!) and taken to a gorgeous secluded campsite to find 5 Beautiful Bells (quite literally!) had been set up for us. They were absolutely perfect and made for a very special evening, we even toasted marshmallows over the fire pit that Katrina supplied too. Thank you

Jess, May 2014

‘I recently helped organise a hen weekend in Dorset for one of my darling friends and we stayed in these cool Bell Tents from Beautiful Bells . They are a small boutique company run by the fabulous Katrina who was a real pleasure to deal with (she answered every one of my thousand emails asking loads of silly questions!) and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for something similar in the South of England.’

Justine, April 2015

‘Fab. Very happy 9 year old boys

Ann, July 2014
